Mental Toughness

In the mist of Covid-19 (Corona Virus), we at JDS WebDesign are hoping everyone is safe, washing your hands frequently, sneezing and coughing in your elbow, and practicing social distancing.  Over the next several weeks, we are planning on blogging about how to make your website more business friendly.  We will have some tutorials on our favorite plugins and features, which will make your site more efficient.

This has been a tough year for all of us.  Covid-19 has made zoom a verb and not a noun.  Everyone has been staying home, which is typical a safe place.  But after a year plus of being in our safe place, many of us are struggling with mental issues.  I am not a license therapist or doctor.  However, mental toughness is real.

Can you get stronger without leaving your comfort zone?

When did existing in your comfort zone become a bad thing?  That being stated, leaving your comfort zone is about growth. Sometimes your best work is done in uncomfortable places.  Getting stronger is not about where you exist.  Getting stronger is about repetition.  Creating a list of items to perform on a daily, weekly and monthly time frame.  Getting stronger lies in your believes.  Belief in your abilities.  You can and will become better.  Have faith.  Work harder.  Work smarter.

Can I remove negative thoughts without writing down a gratitude list?

NO.  Being grateful, eliminates all negative things.  You can not be negative and practice gratitude. Most of us, just forget to be grateful for small things.  The fact that you woke up this morning.  The fact that you have something to eat.  The fact that you have a place to live.  The fact that you have a job.  The fact that you have love ones.  The fact that you have the basic elements, clothes, food, housing, transportation is all things that you should be grateful for.  And if you might not have one or all of these things, then I am sure you have something to be grateful.  Write it down. Write down what you want to have. Read it daily.

I am a hopeless procrastinator, how do I get my work done on time?

Writing down what needs to be done.  Write down when it needs to be completed. Reward yourself for completing it on time. It does not have to be a huge reward. It can be time off. It can be a small pat on the back. It can be a special meal. It can be anything that gives you pleasure.


If you are struggling, then seek some professional help.  Nothing to be embarrassed  about.  Mental Illness is real, but it is not a life sentence.  We all need help from time to time.
